Division PO 3-8168 i A THOUGHT TO REMEMBER By Mrs. Buddy Howard Geo. Washington, even with his muscular power, was in til health during, .his whole life. Beethoven was deaf, yet he wrote music. Helen Keller had three strikes against her; deaf mute and' blind; .Yet,, she became one of the world's greatest personalities. John Milton continued to write poetry after his eye sight failed him. Homer was also blind. Robert E. Lee, defeated In war, became a great educator. Dostoyovsky, the Russian novelist was an epileptic. Hideo Noguchi, brilliant Japanese bacteriologist who paved the way for; syphilis cure, had a childhood in pitiable poverty. Worse yet, at age three, his left hand and arm were badly crippled in an accident. -F.D.R., a crippled polio victim was elected 'President four times. P.T. Barnum of circus .fame had to start sH over again at age 60; gained greater-fame and fortune thai; in earlier years. J. C. Penney had horrible- financial reserves In the depression but he continued,- built » department store empire to expanded greatness. Such people from all over the world, show us how to face ,reality..Stevenson spotlights such examples in these words: "You must some time fight it out or perish; and If that be so, then,why not now, and where you stand?" ....
